Review

We decided to start our review from the very beginning. Producers seem to have brilliant idea to return to simple and at the same time elegant style which has always been a signature of all representatives of C-Class. New C400 is not an exception. It looks rather smart. There are no useless details and elements. Body looks balanced and combined. Unadorned side flanks make the outer look of the cat stylish and at the same time aggressive and muscular, so called restrained simplicity.

Do you see any differences between interior that you have just imagined and this cabin? In order not to underestimate all benefits of this cabin we will call is the nicest one among all other C-Class representatives. There is enough space for both rows of seats.

V-g biturbo 3-loter engine is hiding under the bonnet of new model making it easy to accelerate up to 60 mph limit in 5.2 seconds. 7-speed automatic transmission also shows smart and smooth shifting even when the power is close to its limits. Some people may say that V6 does not match this car’s elegance. However they must have forgotten that C400 belongs to luxury cars and calls for power and great performance on the highway. Otherwise there is no need in all those packages and sets of additional options which you will certainly be ready to pay for. Though, engine can sound a bit offensive closer to its limits. Airmatic suspension will turn out to be a great advantage especially in combination with supportive seats which have nothing in common with aggressiveness.
